Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the Advantages of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive hair removal system that eliminates the re-growth of hair. It can effectively be used on the face, arms, legs, and almost every other area of the body with minimal side effects. Because it is non-invasive, healing time is kept to a minimum and there is no scarring or permanent changes to the skin. Laser hair removal is a very precise technique and can be used to target larger, coarse hairs that may be intermingled with finer hair. The procedure takes less than an hour and is performed in the doctor's office.

Does it Have Side Effects?

Laser hair removal techniques result in very few side effects, if any. Depending on the size of the area and how much hair is to be removed, slight skin irritation may be present. Minor discomfort, slight swelling, and redness may also appear but will only last for a short period of time. Certain types of hair, normally that which is thick and coarse, may be resistant to laser techniques. When the hair begins to grow back, it may be lighter and much finer than the hair that was removed. It may take several weeks for the hair to begin to grow back. In some cases, hair may not grow back at all, especially if many laser procedures have been performed.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Repeated use of laser hair removal techniques may eventually result in complete hair loss in a particular area. Continued use of laser procedures may prevent a follicle from producing hair in the future. The coarseness and thickness of the hair will be a determining factor in how easy it is to remove the hair using a laser technique. It will also determine how many treatments are needed until the returning hair has diminished in size and coarseness. Over time, the continued use of the laser will have an impact on how the follicle produces hair. This may result in the permanent cessation of hair growth in that particular area.
